We got our hands on a throwback interview where Amrita reacted to being MF Hussain’s muse. Amrita had told Zoom that it is one of the best compliments that she has received. She also added that it is going to be a historic compliment when she will look back at her profile and her career.
In 2017, Amrita had shared a video that showed the late painter live painting her face on his canvas. She also talked about the time she got to know that Hussain had announced her as his muse, 11 years after Madhuri Dixit.

Elaborating further, she added, the enormity of that compliment had not sunk in as much at that time. It did when she actually met him in person and he made her painting.
On the work front, she was last seen in ‘Thackeray’ which also starred Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead roles. The movie received positive reviews from the audience and the critics alike. Amrita is yet to announce her next project.
On personal front, Amrita welcomed her first baby with husband RJ Anmol in November 2020. They have named their baby boy Veer.
